Podcast 299: This is our Everest, Part Forty-Five – Confessions of a Window Cleaner, 1974
This week’s This Is Our Everest sees your heroes reach an important (to them) milestone: their 69th episode overall, including the 24 Christmas Everests. To celebrate, if that is the correct word, Edward and Ian watched the bawdy 1974 sex comedy Confessions of a Window Cleaner. We quickly gain an insight into the jaded state of the former’s addled mind now, while the latter not only undergoes all seven stages of grief but even finds time to invent an eighth.
It’s hard to know where to start with this curdled film’s shortcomings: Is it the unrealistic dialogue and situations? The lazy and anachronistic sexual politics? Maybe it’s the ease with which the parents of newborn babies are able to find adequate childcare to attend their sexually incontinent brother’s shotgun wedding. Whichever way to look at it (including from beneath) it’s an unruly mess down there. If you’d like to be both unamused and unaroused, you can watch the film here.
